Author:  Atul Gawande
Genre:  Non-Fiction, Standalone
Published:  2014
Personal Rating:  3.5/5 (good)
Format/Narrator:  Audiobook/Robert Petkoff
Yearly Count:  23

As a practicing surgeon, Gawande is attuned to both sides of the medical field - giving and receiving. His goal is to bring to light the fact that we may treat the end of life in a less than perfect fashion.  He focuses on the general aspect of getting older when a person is healthy and when medication is needed.  

I found the book to be somewhat redundant and not new.  However, if the world would take notice and implement Gawande's findings (when appropriate), life could continue to be self-driven even at its ending.

Thoughts of Joy


  1. I liked this more than you did. I found it very thought provoking.

    1. Bermudaonion ~ I definitely thought it was good and thought provoking, but not to the extent that it was revolutionary. I think some of it is very basic and common sense. Bringing it out in book form may help those that haven't thought that far ahead.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. :)

I hope you have a great day and ...
Happy Reading!
